Summer has arrived! As we enter June and our excitement turns to vacations, family, sun and surf, what plans should you pencil into your calendar? Making the most of summer for many means catching up on reading, seeking out new opportunities, and spending time with our kids. Events By Deb is here to make some recommendations on how to optimize your summer for your social and mental nourishment!
Summer months mean family trips! After a long school year your kids are going to be itching to explore a new location and release some tension. If you haven’t already booked a trip, scope out some AirBnBs within driving distance for a last minute vacation. Saving on airfare and creating a road trip style getaway allows you to take in some sights and stops along the way. Ask everyone involved to choose one stop they would like to take on the journey!
Get involved! No matter your age, Summer is a great time to test out an internship or volunteer in your community. Searching for these opportunities is easy by asking around or searching one of the several great databases such as Volunteer NC. Getting connected in youth support programs, soup kitchens, sport teams, and other community improvement projects is a fulfilling way to spend some summer hours. Another way to improve is to hone in on a skill you are hoping to gain experience in and apply for a volunteer or internship position to gain connections and network.
What are your plans now that school is out and summer is here? Hopefully you’ve taken some tips from our blog to integrate great activities and family time into our favorite season!
